Stone Italiana surfaces now available to KBB designers using ArtiCAD-Pro software.
Stone Italiana’s innovative range of quartz worktops are now available as a comprehensive graphics catalogue within the ArtiCAD-Pro software , to help kitchen and bathroom designers differentiate their designs when presenting to customers.
Philip Winter, Sales and Marketing Director at Italian Luxury Surfaces, the official UK distributor of Stone Italiana said:
“We chose ArtiCAD as our first CAD partner because we have been impressed by the innovative developments they have made, particularly their acceleration over the last few years. We wanted to ensure that designers can access high-quality, accurate graphics of our products and create inspirational, photorealistic designs for their customers. The realism of the ArtiCAD graphics allows designers and consumers to really appreciate the quality and sophistication of our materials.”
All Stone Italiana products are certified as ‘food safe’ by NSF, together with high levels of heat resistance and fire ratings. Surprisingly, whilst commercial kitchens are required to only use kitchen work surfaces that are certified as suitable for contact with food, currently, the same safeguards do not apply to domestic environments.
”With more emphasis on healthy lifestyles, we believe that forward thinking designers and retailers will only want to work with surface materials that have been independently certified as being fit for purpose.
On the environmental front, the company’s Cosmolite products by Stone Italiana, which launch in 2020 are made from 100% pre-consumer recycled materials, an industry first. We are seeing a definite move amongst consumers towards sustainability, quality materials and longevity rather than perhaps a more disposable approach.Phil Winter
